Camellia Buffet continues to attract diners of all ages and with varying tastes as the “thrill of the grill” satiates appetites of any size.

Whether celebrating a special occasion or enjoying the engaging dining experience throughout the week, Camellia serves up a scintillating array of local favorites on its all-you-can-eat buffet. The popular establishment specializes in quality Korean-inspired cuisine prepared yakiniku-style at diners’ tables.

Guests have come to rely on Camellia Buffet over the years for quality meals with great value, as the dining destination remains affordable and offers an enjoyable experience for all.

Meat from the buffet: Spicy Pork, Barbecue Chicken, Garlic Pork Steak, Beef Brisket, Pork Belly and Kalbi

The buffet is available daily during lunch (10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.) and dinner (2:30-10 p.m.) for just $18.95 (lunch) and $27.95 (dinner), while children ages 4-8 receive discounted rates of $14 and $17.

Multiple selections grace the buffet line at Camellia, including steak, bulgogi (marinated barbecue beef), barbecue pork, spicy chicken, teriyaki chicken and multiple varieties of kimchee. The dinner buffet also includes bone-in short ribs, beef tongue, beef brisket and various desserts.

Camellia Buffet patrons rave about pork belly, as the offering is similar to bacon, although it is usually enjoyed lightly grilled so the meat remains tender and soft. Furthermore, the pork belly’s natural salt content pairs nicely with one’s favorite beverage.

Camellia Buffet recently underwent a restaurant-wide renovation under new owner Shawna Kim, who added sushi rolls and nigiri selections to the nightly dinner buffet. Add the sensational sushi to the extensive array of vegetables, meats and side dishes, and it’s clear to see why local diners keep coming back for more.

“We offer lots of choices for the entire family,” confirms Kim.

Throughout December, Camellia Buffet is offering a special promotion: receive 15 percent off bills of $100 or more. And, to help celebrate the holidays, the eatery will serve pumpkin pie on the buffet’s dessert spread throughout December.
